Other Remains
Prior to the construction of the church, the cave may have been the tomb of a revered person or another type of holy place since it was incorporated into the church. The area in front of the cave was also used before the church was built, as in the southeastern part of the church, remains of an earlier north/south wall cut into bedrock and having plaster on its eastern face were found. Associated with this wall is a thick plastered surface aligned with it, lying north of the apse, and apparently covering another cave which is at present unexcavated.
